Rosh Tzipor and Sheva Tahanot (The Seven Mills)

We will stop at hidden observation points, and with some luck, we might be able to observe the birds. We will also visit the Sheva Tahanot site, where the flour mill that was at the most western point of the seven mills was discovered. The mills were operated by the Yarkon river current until 1936.

Combining volunteer work to clean the forests with fun activities
 
Volunteering to clean the forests and the parks

Didn’t Clean Up? You’ve Littered!
KKL- JNF invites you to activities that focus on protecting the environment and cleaning up the forests and parks. We will take a guided tour of the forest trails while cleaning up garbage left by others, which causes harm to the environment and wildlife.
 
We will experience fun and adventure through a cell-phone-based escape/ navigation game (via the 'HavaYaar' app). It provides an enriching educational lesson on the environment and the importance of keeping the forests clean. Finally, we will play a creative game together using the "Escape Box".
